In the first place, anything can apply to… Continue reading Science in Fiction …and vice-versa

Draw me gently to your chest my heart will linger there; across the ages, along time’s trails, the memories ever return. Wait for me!—oh, wait for me! the plaintive echo pleads. When least expected, awakening to memories in words of a poem. Oh tell me—where do they dwell? Among the dreams and reveries apart from the wrack of reality forever a blend of… Continue reading clouds and memories, a poem
